Camouflage: No Longer For Your Grandpa (or the 90s)

Camouflage – the biggest new trend for Fall – is surprisingly versatile and adds a uniformed excitement to any look. Really.

Good, because as much as we love us a good Tina Fey flick, any fashion associated with Lindsay Lohan should be forgotten. Let’s start anew.

When wearing a large camouflage piece like this light trench coat from G-Star Raw, build the rest of your outfit around the jacket for a complete look.

Sometimes camouflage can seem overpowering. Try balancing out its strength with a bold color. A royal or cobalt blue will work great.

While traditional camouflage is classic and safe, have fun with the print, and opt for different tones. Expect to see blue, gray, white and black camouflage color combos this fall.
